hey devbox! I was wondering - why not have a fallback container generation for "all other cases" that are outside python, go, etc? For example, if we use nixos/nix and then the best way to install devbox, and then initiative a shell with a command that exits (to install stuffs) it would be fairly straight forward to have that be the fallback - here is an example: https://github.com/rse-ops/devbox/blob/main/bases/devbox/Dockerfile. And maybe I'd even do:
FROM nixos/nix RUN nix-channel --update RUN wget https://github.com/jetpack-io/devbox/releases/download/0.1.0/devbox_0.1.0_linux_amd64.tar.gz && \ tar -xzvf devbox_0.1.0_linux_amd64.tar.gz && \ chmod +x devbox && \ mv devbox /usr/bin ENV PATH=/usr/bin:$PATH WORKDIR /code COPY devbox.json devbox.json RUN devbox shell -- echo "Installing packages" ENTRYPOINT ["devbox"] CMD ['shell']
So the default entrypoint is devbox shell right into the environment (not I haven't tried this, my container build above I default to a shell and then run
devbox shell at my leisure!
Thanks! The one thing I'd like to improve upon is to figure out a way to have a one liner "install the latest devbox" that will work in the container. If we use something like the above, we'd minimally want to expose the version as an
ARG I think. Let me know if I can help! I would absolutely love to be able to do like:
$ devbox build --name ghcr.io/rse-ops/openmpi-devbox
in a directory with a devbox.json and magically get a container with it!
Heyo! I'm trying this out on a few computers (looking for issues) - right now on an older ubuntu and hit:
$ docker run -it ghcr.io/rse-ops/openmpi-devbox:clang-14 bash-5.1# devbox shell Installing nix packages. This may take a while... Error: apply Nix derivation: running command /root/.nix-profile/bin/nix-env --profile /code/.devbox/nix/profile/default --install -f /code/.devbox/gen/development.nix: exit status 1 with command output: error: Operation not permitted bash-5.1#
Going to keep debugging but want to keep you in the loop!
Update: I couldn't reproduce this on a newer OS (ubuntu 20/22.04) so I think it might just be an old OS issue. I wouldn't worry if it was just for my old laptop this happened!
